    Moondog

    He was born Louis Hardin, but the world knew him as Moondog-and his avant-garde compositions influenced a generation of minimalist composers like Philip Glass and Steve Reich. Now, Moondog, The Viking of 6th Avenue's seminal 1969 album recorded with producer James William Guercio, will be reissued vinyl, its first pressing in over a decade. Featuring original symphonic and classically-inspired works (including material dedicated to Charlie Parker and Benny Goodman), Moondog is an album that must be heard to be believed.

    Moondog

    Moondogs debut release, originally on the Prestige label, came out in 1956, long after hed become a legendary New York City street performer. The blind Kansas native showcases his talent for the minimal and avant-garde here, with compositions driven by percussion and Japanese-inspired melodies, complimented by street sounds, recitations, and animal noises. Bizarre even for todays standards, its a wonder this was released over a half-century ago. A brilliant debut.

    More Moondog

    This is the second Moondog LP, originally released on Prestige in 1956. It continues the NYC street performers exploration of minimalist composition and field recording, mixing percussion and sparse melodies with piano solos, street sounds, and monologues. Surprisingly accessible despite its avant-garde nature, bridging the gap between the familiar and the bizarre. Another all out masterwork from one of 20th century Americas most unique minds.

    The Story Of Moondog (Colored Vinyl) (Pre-Order)

    Limited Edition Of 1,000 On Purple And Green Starburst Vinyl.

    Originally released on Prestige in 1957, this is the third LP from NYC street performer and avant-garde/minimalist composer Moondog. Perhaps the least accessible of his early releases, this album is made up of percussive jams, usually on instruments of his own creation, street sounds, poetry, and Far East melodies, despite opening with a swinging number that is, oddly, the most bizarre thing on the album. Another classic from Moondog reissued with its original Andy Warhol artwork.

    Big Brother & The Holding Company

    Six months before becoming an overnight sensation following a blistering set at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, Big Brother and the Holding Company was an unknown group from San Francisco playing a month-long Chicago club engagement. Mutual freind, Chet Helms introduced the band to singer, Janis Joplin and after their gig was cut short, Big Brother and Janis avoided returning to California, signed with the small, struggling jazz label Mainstream Records and cut the three-day recording session that makes up this, their self-titled debut in December of 1966. The set mostly consisted of original songs, with the exception of New York City street musician, Moondog's All Is Loneliness and a more secular arrangement of the gospel standard Down on Me. Despite Joplin's fiery singing style, Big Brother was still the kind of democracy in which Joplin shared vocals with Sam Andrew on the trippy Light Is Faster Than Sound and the more soulful duet Call on Me. Most of the record features Joplin reaching back and channeling her hero, Big Maybelle on songs like the brassy Women Is Losers and the no-nonsense Intruder.

    Big Brother & The Holding Company

    Sundazed presents the high-definition vinyl reissue of the ultra-rare mono edition of Big Brother & the Holding Companys 1967 debut! Besides being the album that introduced the world to Janis Joplin, Big Brother & the Holding Companys first release stands as one of the classic recordings of 60s rock. Joplin had added her fiery wail to the archetypal Haight-Ashbury acid-rock quintet only months before it entered the studio to make the album, and for the sessions she shares vocal duties with bassist Peter Albin and guitarist Sam Andrew. But, thanks to the LPs raging single, Down on Me, it was immediately clear to radio audiences of the time that the Texas-born singer was a new force to be reckoned with.


    In addition to Joplins inimitable blues cry, Big Brothers other key strength lies in the scraping, distorted guitars of Sam Andrew and James Gurley, which are in heavy abundance on such choice cuts as the trippy Light is Faster Than Sound, the punkish Women is Losers, and the groups fuzzy, droning remake of Moondogs All is Loneliness. Cut from the original mono masters, this Sundazed edition adds two scarce single-only sides.

    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.
